Ok so I know Thanos is mainly considered to be at Teambuster level on the boards but I tend to think we are selling him short has he has a lot more going for him than say WWH or Doomsday.

I happen to think Thanos crosses over into the Skyfather level category, Im not saying he's up there with Odin but I do think he makes it in to the low end - heres a few reasons why (& a couple of links):

Strength
-Able to physically match both Thor and Thing pre-resurrection
-Knocks the Champion of the Universe flying back with one punch (Earth heroes had a job to hurt him with punches)
-Holds back both Hulk and Thing in Infinity Crusade

Thanks to the various people who the Scans belong to - they are not mine \:\)

Feel free to add your own examples I've just put up what came to mind.

SO THANOS SKYFATHER QUALIFIED OR NOT????

Look to me like he blasted Galactus out of his ship (or where ever they were) knocking him aways, maybe a football pitch, but hardly across a planet.
Catching Galactus off guard and knocking him over is a "skyfather" feat, then I'd like to nominate Thing and Reed Richards for title.

The whole skyfather ranking is over rated. As any character that is head of an extra-dimensional pantheon automatically qualifies. There are several comparatively weak near-Earth-based skyfathers that are not all that powerful.
